World War Z Trailer

I’m pretty much tired of zombies – in fact I would say that I’m officially fucking sick to death of them – ok, I sorta like the new season of Walking Dead, but you know what I mean, Zombie commercials, zombie walks, zombie this, zombie that.

BUT

the trailer for  the new Brad Pitt zombie film World War Z just came out and it looks alright. This one could be pretty cool. Check it out.

oh, one more thing I’m sick of…. movie trailers that use that music cue, “BAAAUUUUUUHHHHHH” then silence. Then something dramatic happens. Then that music cue again, “BAAAUUUUUUHHHHHH”. Over and over again. “BAAAUUUUUUHHHHHH”

The Mandelbrot Melee! Coming this month!

Ever wonder who would win in a fight between Han Solo and Indiana Jones? Or how about battle between Jaws and and The Giant Squid from 20,ooo Leagues Under the Sea? Well wonder no further – The Mandelbrot Melee is here to help. Now, with the help of PollDaddy you can vote for your favorites every day this month in a BATTLE ROYALE!

I’ve broken the contenders down into 5 Divisions:

DIVISION 1: MEN

This group contains men and woman will no special powers or enhancements. All they have are their wits, skill, ingunuity and overall bad-assness!

[ Example: James Bond, Ellen Ripley from the Alien movies, Batman… ]

DIVISION 2: MONSTERS

Here in this group are the giants, creatures, and other inhuman beasts.

[ Example: King Kong, The Dragon from Dragonslayer, Swamp Thing… ]

DIVISION 3: MAGIC

In this division we have the mystical and unexplained. If you can cast spells or have somehow come to life thanks to sorcery or other witchcraft, then you have a place in Division 3.

[ Example: Gandalf, Chucky, Dracula, Medusa from Clash of the Titans… ]

DIVISION 4: MARTIANS

Things from other worlds dominate division 4. Aliens and creatures not from Earth will battle it out to see who reigns supreme!

Example: John Carpenters The Thing, The Space Worm from Empire Strikes Back, The Predator… ]

DIVISION 5: MACHINES

In our last Division are the metal powerhouses. Maybe they were once men, or maybe they even look like a man, but inside gears churn and diodes dilate.

[ Example: The T-1000, RoboCop, The Joker Truck from Maximum Overdrive… ]

So there you have it – starting this month (maybe even later today!) you will get the chance to weigh in on these massive matches. Who will win? Who will lose? Who will come out on top as the Ultimate Champion? It’s all up to you!
